That is intensely annoying I agree and I sincerely hope they are going to get their act together on this before long. I guess it might eventually end up the other way around with the ebook thoroughly proofed and the paper book poorly so.
One bright light though is that if there are errors that later get fixed you may get an email notification like I recently received from Amazon:
We are happy to announce that an updated version of your past Kindle purchase of Perdido Street Station (ASIN:B003GK21A8) is now available. The version you received had duplicated text that have been corrected. |
If you wish to receive the updated version, please reply to this email with the word “Yes” in the first line of your response. Within 2 hours of receiving the e-mail any device that has the title currently downloaded will be updated automatically if the wireless is on.
You don't get that with print errors in a printed book
